Maxwell Stamp is an international economics consultancy. Established in 1959, they have over 45 years of experience in over 165 countries and territories. Their track record in transition and developing countries is unparalleled from Albania to Zambia.
They are London based, but have a permanent office in Bangladesh and project offices around the world. Their wide range of clients includes national and regional governments, international organisations, NGOs and public and private sector companies.
All their clients have their own specific requirements, priorities and ways of interacting with professional advisers. They take pride on their flexibility and their ability to be accommodating and responsive without compromising the quality and depth of the service they provide.
What They Do:
As an economics consultancy, applying sound economic principles to problem solving is at the heart of what they do. However, the scope of their work and the range of their clients have diversified well beyond the traditional fields in which economists operate. They have developed expertise across a wide range of competencies and policy areas, ranging from international trade to rural livelihoods, from privatisation to revenue administration, from health to financial sector analysis.
On many of their projects, complex issues require expertise that cuts across more than one of these practice areas. Their teams work together, drawing the necessary skills into a coordinated approach that ensures results. They offer the necessary depth and diversity of expertise that only a broad-based consultancy can provide.
By working closely with their clients' staff, they ensure that they fully understand all the issues, and by involving them throughout the solution process, the results are sustainable in the future. Their experience, technical skill and objectivity are supported by their client's in-depth understanding of the aims and expectations of their organisation.
The bigger picture always remains paramount. However complex and sophisticated their analysis, they never forget that their work in developing and least-developed countries is about eradicating poverty and increasing well-being.
